About Coach

My fitness journey started at a young age. I was always active in youth sports, mainly football and baseball. I started weightlifting at age 12 to gain strength and muscle. I was an avid cyclist as an adult, completing several road races and cycling events. I have also run many road and trail races. I prefer trail running and rucking to road running. A love for obstacle course racing brought me to find CrossFit as a way to train for these races, and in 2013 I started CrossFit. I am a graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics Education. I obtained my CF-L1 certification in 2017 and my CF-L2 in 2022. In 2021, I became a Certified Personal Trainer. At Crossfit Recreate, I bring my passion for education and CrossFit to each class I coach. I love pushing my athletes out of their comfort zone to make them stronger, more skilled, and more functional humans.
